It is a land of diverse physical beauty, unique wildlife and many historical similarities to the United States. Join us as we explore the history and landscape of this key U.S. ally. We will review Australia’s beginning as a prisoner settlement, its role in numerous global conflicts and its modern challenges to protect its unique features.

Venezuela is in crisis. There is not enough food, let alone other goods. Hospitals are crumbling and the health care system is completely broken. Electricity blackouts have become routine and crime is rampant. Join Active Minds as we explore how this once promising economy and evolving democracy has wound up in shambles. We will look at how the price of oil, the policies of the late President Hugo Chavez, and other factors converged to create this perfect storm and explore what the future holds for this important South American country.

Snow Removal Policy
During Major Snow Events as defined by current Denver City & County standards, the Stapleton MCA will initiate its emergency snow removal plan for the alleys along with the city’s plan for neighborhood streets. In the event of a major snow event, the snow removal plan will include the continuous use of heavy equipment, light equipment and hand work to remove the snow from alleys, intersections and major pedestrian paths. Alley work will be limited to the removal of enough snow from the alleys so residents can access their garages. This emergency-only procedure involves attempting to open up a single drive lane through each alley in the community. The drive lanes will not be scraped down to pavement, to eliminate the need to truck any snow off-site.
This procedure does not negate individual property owners from participating in the snow removal during these types of storms. Although we are unable to address the complete removal of snow on the roads, it is our goal during major snow events to remove enough material to allow for some level of travel in and out of the alleys. Paths and parks are done to open up some level of pedestrian travel. We will continue to address all the pocket parks and pathways to ensure that they are as snow free as possible to promote pedestrian access throughout the community.
